THE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF STANDARDIZATION FOR HULL, MECHANICAL, AND ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT

Standardization of hull, mechanical, and electrical (HM and E) equipments in the Navy shipbuilding progam is assumed to be cost-effective; however, life-cycle-cost estimates to substantiate this assumption are not available. This report presents the results of a study to determine the value to the Navy, over the total life cycle of a ship, of standardizing HM and E equipments. This report presents an overview of the Navy ship standardization program, the development of a standardization life-cycle-cost model, standardization-related work tasks, and a life-cycle-cost comparison of the use of standard and nonstandard HM and E components and equipments in different complexity categories. The results provide examples of reduced life-cycle costs achieved when a standard component or equipment is utilized. /Author/
